One of my favorite things about the stage that Macks is in now is how much fun he is having with his sisters. He could sit and watch them all day if I let him. They love to do things to make him laugh, and he loves the entertainment. It’s always so magical watching my kids’ relationship grow. Knowing how much they love one another is enough to make my heart swell.
I love capturing special moments with Macks and his sisters so that I can cherish these moments forever.
Twelve weeks after having my oldest daughter, Harlan, I had to return to work as a teacher. We were exclusively breastfeeding at the time and I had all intentions of continuing our breastfeeding journey even after I returned to work.
I had very supportive colleagues at my school who would give me time to pump throughout the day. While our breastfeeding journey was going well without any hiccups, my journey with pumping was just about the exact opposite. Although I was pumping throughout the day, I couldn’t keep up with her demand because I just wasn’t producing enough when I pumped.
Riding in the car is something that has taken some getting used to for my kids. We lived in the city for so long without a car that most of our time was spent taking the subway, bus, and every once in a while, a taxi.
When we moved to the suburbs and bought a car, Macks did not like it at all. Every time that we put him in the car, he would just cry. He didn’t like being confined at all. While most babies are calm and usually fall asleep as soon as they get in the car, Macks would do the exact opposite.
His dislike for the car made it even more nerve-wracking for me when we decided to take a road trip this summer from our home in Connecticut to our family’s home in Kentucky. A 12-hour car ride (which is more like 15 hours with three kids) was definitely going to be a learning experience for both me and Macks. We made it to our destination with just a few hiccups, but there was definitely a lot that I learned along the way.

Although summer hasn’t officially come to an end, it’s on its way, and fall will be here before we know it. As much as I love the summer months, I have a special place in my heart for fall. Between the leaves changing and all of the holidays celebrated, it is my favorite time of year. One of those holidays celebrated during fall is Halloween. Macks will celebrate his first Halloween this year, and while I haven’t put much thought into what he is going to dress up as, I know that I need to start planning and shopping. I plan on checking out Costco, where they have these Disney Baby costumes available now in-store for $18.99!
